Dramatic changes are reported to be continuing at Tulisa, Louis, Gary and Nicole — and then the bombshell. There were looks of shock on people's faces. Even the judges looked upset."
The mass cull is claimed to have been prompted by show boss Simon Cowell, who is shaking up the show in the face of competition from The Voice.
Earlier this week we reported that he had apparently changed the age rules for the groups, and the cull is claimed to be a bid to weed out mediocre contestants.
A spokesman for the show told the paper: "Some of the contestants who got a 'Yes' at their first auditions, when seen side by side against the others, were not of a good enough standard."
